Insult to Intelligence?

Last night many gamers were subjected to what could only be considered an insult on the intelligence of gamers. GTTV's annual pre-E3 show subjected viewers to an all out hour-long assault of product placements, a fake boobed Morgan Web wannabe and a super model that could careless about gaming. It was an insult to intelligence to say the least.

Well I sure didn't tune in to see Geoff Keighleys ugly mug. I came to see two things Boobs and Games and the mission was accomplished. But I do get your point. Seriously Geoff could have been riding a unicorn and I wouldn't notice him standing next to Marissa Miller.

Briefcase Joe2688d ago (Edited 2688d ago )

You wouldn't notice him on a unicorn(one of the most beautiful creatures on Earth)? GTFO! Now I know you are lying!

FanboyAttack2688d ago

A unicorn is not one of the most beautiful creatures on Earth. XD

Parapraxis2688d ago (Edited 2688d ago )

No they aren't, we all know damn well Pegasuses are far more pretty.

DatNJDom812688d ago (Edited 2688d ago )

a horse with a huge tumour. I personally couldn't stand seeing the poor thing suffer. Hence, the shotgun in my right hand.

Dude i have bad news for you... Unicorns

they dont exist

sorry... sorry.. ohhh... come on dont cry.

AC130-Gunship2688d ago (Edited 2688d ago )

There ought to be a law against those types of productions. The superficiality of the whole thing was palpable. Like Marisa's not just a model guys, she's also a gamer. Those type of production tactics spoil the romanticism. :-( I love my games. Amanda was hotter.

Actually, the best part was the Devil's Third announcement.

If you read the Garret novels by Glen Cook you'd know that unicorns are horrible carnivorous pack hunters feared by all people with good sense. Their horns are pretty good for killing vampires in a pinch though.

homer2687d ago

Unicorns do exist!!!! The are just gray, fat, and ugly and are called rhinos.

Haha, "don't get me wrong, I'm all for big boobs."

chrisnick2688d ago

I thought it was all just...corny. Thank god for the kz3 trailer at the end.

freezola752688d ago

Sorry Geoff, your show rocks, but these gaming/event shows that they put you in, blows tremendously!! It's a travesty even... boobs withstanding.

mercenarie2688d ago (Edited 2688d ago )

Keighley with Adam Sessler, problem solved.

Gandalf2688d ago

But you know who looks good riding a unicorn?

poopface12688d ago (Edited 2688d ago )

ESPICALLY THE PART WHERE ISSAC FROM DEAD SPACE WALKED OUT. I almost changed the channel right there, but I wanted to see dead space 2.

The whole show and the forced applause made me cringe, but I was happy to see the games.

I was really excited and happy to see ITAGAKI tho. I really didnt expect that.

Spydiggity2688d ago (Edited 2688d ago )

is anyone really surprised by any of this? just like anything these days, this is meant to appeal to the masses. and the masses are a buncha mouth breathers that are lucky if they can brush their teeth without poking their eye out. your talking about an industry that decided it would be a good idea to have the cast of jersey shore appear with mike tyson at the video game awards. it's a joke.

Blacktric2688d ago (Edited 2688d ago )

Keighley is the true definition of idiot. He keeps pumping up lame news or announcements as megatons. I did watch it today, 3 hours after they made it available on GameTrailers.com. They announced/showed 3-4 games and because of all the useless sh*t in between every announcement/video I was already halfway through. Then Geoff said we already announced "TON OF EXCLUSIVE VIDEOS AND WE ARE NOT EVEN HALFWAY THROUGH". BTW article has pinpointed the problems with the show. Two idiots with other two hoe's talking about gaming while looking at each other to correct any errors they'll make with stupid and easily hyped crowd at the back. It was a waste of time except Killzone 3, GT 5 and TFU 2 footage that we'll be seeing in E3 anyway.

Blaze9292688d ago (Edited 2688d ago )

That pre-show was f'ing whack. From now on I'm not listening or falling for any of Geoff Keighley's BS hyping. Tool just wants people to watch his show. There were more commercials and IN-SHOW ADVERTISING than games shown. The whole thing was a waste of time and corny.

On a side note - nothing wrong with some McKay on the side ;)

ShepardVasNormandy2688d ago

And remember to follow me on twitter where I will be posting updates on E3 using my new KIN from Verizon Wireless.

Inside_out2688d ago

The_Zeitgeist2687d ago

Wifey does like the ladies but that is besides the point.

Greyfoxdbz2687d ago

How about a unicorn with giant cans?

fr0sty2687d ago

I can't help but laugh at the fact that this article is lashing out at Spike for making gamers out to be stupid, when they couldn't spell the phrase "couldn't care less" properly...

ROFL. Now thats funny.

I watched it too. I did find it pretty cheesy.

Megaton2688d ago

GTTV is like porn with a story. You have to sit though the cornball antics of people who couldn't give a rat's ass about gaming (the story) to get to the trailers (the sex).

It's the same exact reason why the VGAs are generally mocked by gamers. It's like they've got a bottomless barrel of ass clowns to throw on stage as a distraction for the pop culture dullards they're trying to leech ratings from.

There is no place for actual gamers on TV anymore. Not that I know of.

mirroredderorrim2687d ago

Golden comment, my friend. Here is a bubble.

gumgum992687d ago

lol, porn with a story. That's a good one.

Chaostar2688d ago

The Storm Trooper bit made me cringe.

I agree whole-heartedly with the author on this one.

Rainstorm812688d ago

As a Star Wars Fan it was like a slap in the face or more like a punch in the teeth when she used the jedi mind trick.......

Have you ever seen Star Wars Lady??????

the-show-stopper2687d ago

totally agree man
if they didn't show TFU 2 mini movie i wasnt going to watch the rest

adamx2688d ago

The chick in the pink was hotter then that twig "super model" with her manly jaw....

Anon73492688d ago

They're both ugly, just the girl with the man jaw was worse.

I prefer normal women over those freaks.

Microsoft_Spokesman2687d ago

She looked like the n4g avatar (to the left).
